In the lo-res pic, Spears is shown from the shoulders up, standing with her back to the camera and her face turned toward it. The singer is in a red outfit and surrounded by a wreath of microphones.
On Saturday, she tweeted, “Day 1 of the HIAM shoot with [director] Jonas Akerlund. Such an incredible experience. I think this will be one of the best videos I have ever done.” On Sunday, the same day the photo was taken she wrote, “Day 2 is a wrap! #HIAM video coming soon….”
Choreographer Brian Friedman also kept fans updated on the video shoot via Twitter throughout the weekend. “Good luck 2 @britneyspears and all of my incredible dancers,” he wrote on Saturday. “You all have surpassed my expectations and I am so thankful for ur hard work!”
And on Sunday, he continued the praise, tweeting, “What a fabulous day on set of HIAM! @britneyspears killed it! She danced her ass off! Great work 2 my dancers too… Y’all slayed!”
Meanwhile, fansite Breatheheavy.com reportedly obtained a call sheet for the video, which revealed that the video was shot at Paramount Studios. The sheet also indicates that sometime Lady Gaga stylist B Akerlund designed the costumes for the video and that “Project Runway” hairstylist Philip Carreon worked on the shoot.
